Police: Bar patron fed up with Irish music, pulls fire alarm

ST. CHARLES – A 25-year-old woman pulled a fire alarm in a downtown Irish pub Sunday after witnesses say she complained of the Irish music, according to a St. Charles police report.

Shona Alayne Lukes, of the 200 block of North Tyler Road, St. Charles, was charged with disorderly conduct for pulling a false fire alarm, a Class 4 Felony.

An employee of McNally’s Irish Pub, 201 E. Main St., told police Lukes and the man she was with were intoxicated and had been complaining all night because the bar was playing Irish music.

Witnesses said Lukes and the man left McNally’s as the alarm were sounding. Police found them at another nearby bar. The report does not indicate why Lukes pulled the alarm, just that she admitted to bumping into it, turning and pulling the handle.

Lukes does not appear to have a criminal record other than traffic violations.

She was released Monday on $15,000 bail. Her next court date is scheduled for 9 a.m. May 14.
